Window 10 issues

Hi,

We have observed a steady increase in pool paged bytes on our systems running Windows 10 1809 build.

As part of our procedure we delete pagefile.sys file from C:\ drive to reduce the size of our final captured image. WE have used poolmon tool to find this memory leak

Any help would be appreciated to find the root cause of this increase in pool paged bytes.

Hi,
In general, we don’t need to delete paging file specially in C partition, just set No paging files on C partition and set paging files size on other partitions.
The paging file may grow to large amounts. 5GB-10GB for a paging file is pretty normal. If you want to capture a reference image for deployment, just set No paging file in Virtual memory interface.

For memory leak issue, you could use performance monitor to find which process are keep increasing memory usage.
To perform a performance monitor
Type perfmon in searching box, start performance monitor.
Select performance monitor
Right click on graph and add counters
Select pool paged bytes under process, the processes will be listed under instances of selected object box
Keep monitor on and find which process in paged pool keep increasing memory usage.
